“Harvey Nichols Hampers 2020 benefitted from a number of newly designed ranges”, said Shirley Aubrey, Food Development Manager, Harvey Nichols. “Highlights included Naughty Nibbles Savoury Snacks, the Saucy range and the gorgeous chocolate bars. The new ranges performed extremely well online, with several of them selling out, and we were delighted to see that they also captured the imagination of the UK press who featured them in their Christmas roundups.”
Richard Village, Strategy Director of Smith &+ Village, said: “This year, with restrictions curbing the usual in-store Christmas shopping frenzy, it became more important than ever to elevate the online experience. Strong visual cues are key in order to stand out in our maddeningly overloaded visual world. When working with prestige brands, it’s about keeping very strong roots in their heritage but bringing them up to date and evolving to constantly engage with their tribe.”
